    Howdy.
    [​IMG]
    I... don't actually know quite where this was, but I'd assume it was in the dungeon after a rest.
    [​IMG]
    These seem to similar to the Fire Beetle.
    [​IMG]
    Or maybe not.
    [​IMG]
    Yeah, no.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Crap DU! Stop failing.
    [​IMG]
    Not much.
    [​IMG]
    But this is! Goes right to Kalin.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    These were all pretty easy. This next one though:
    [​IMG]
    Sprites. The bane of humanoid existence. They've already knocked out CB and cursed us more than once.
    [​IMG]
    This could go on for a while.
    [​IMG]
    Jesus. Grim healed him, only to have him go back down.
    [​IMG]
    After a long, drawn out annoying fight, we die.
    [​IMG]
    Let's go out for a walk.
    [​IMG]
    I love new enemy types!
    [​IMG]
    Oh for f*** sake, DU!
    [​IMG]
    This is going pretty evenly, all things considered.
    [​IMG]
    We might actually win. Or not. This is tense!
    [​IMG]
    :FU:
    [​IMG]
    :FUYEAH:
    [​IMG]
    :decline: Only 133 XP for almost dying?
    [​IMG]
    :decline:
    [​IMG]
    Eh. It goes to Bee. It has a max damage of 10 and she doesn't use a shield anyway.
    [​IMG]
    We're in this mountain pass.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Easy peasy.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    :incline: of sleep.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Largest haul I had gotten at this point.
    [​IMG]
    This could be terribad.
    [​IMG]
    New weapon is :incline: of Bee's damage output.
    [​IMG]
    :salute:
    [​IMG]
    I make the weak stuff go to sleep to keep it off of us.
    [​IMG]
    Jesus DU!
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Boom.
    [​IMG]
    It went very predictably after that.
    [​IMG]
    :incline:
    [​IMG]
    Ummm, what? I know for a fact that I cast a level 2 spell in the last update, but he just got to level 3? And he just got level 2 spells? I am confuse.

    At this point, I looked at the map that comes in the extras for the GOG pack. I was finally able to make out a small pass to the north between two mountains. So we head there, hoping to find a way to Erliquin.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Or not. No Erliquin for us (yet)
    [​IMG]
    Starts off in our favour.
    [​IMG]
    I go down.
    [​IMG]
    Yeah, three rounds in. One thing I can say about this game is that one way or another, fights are over fast.
    [​IMG]
    :salute: Kalin

    We decide to go back out and try to find a way to Erliquin, or at least just wander around a bit.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    These aren't too bad.
    [​IMG]
    Dinolizards? So now VARN has dinosaurs?
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This is going pretty poorly.
    [​IMG]
    But we carry through
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    They practically fall apart as they walk toward us.
    [​IMG]
    This game has road signs? Neat.
    [​IMG]
    So, yeah. We wandered for a while and our biome suddenly shifted. I proposed that we must have been somewhere near Castle Blackridge North.
    [​IMG]
    I was right! We have entered the Castle, hoping for an inn of some sort.
    [​IMG]
    Alack! For here there be demons!
    [​IMG]
    This one didn't turn out quite right.
    [​IMG]
    Huh. First ones that outright resist my spells (the fire beetles resisted fire).
    [​IMG]
    There's half Kalin's health.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    They can also cast spells.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Goodbye, fair maiden of death and destruction :salute:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Alas. Poor Kalin, I knew him well (not really).
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Looks like Azira's their next target.
    [​IMG]
    Our Russian brute priest goes down.
    We had no chance
    [​IMG]
    Azira tells me that after this he killed almost all of them and then only got overwhelmed by sheer numbers.
    [​IMG]
    I doubt that though.

    We decide after some dungeon spelunking that it'd be best to hang in Sorpigal. So here you go. Let's check out some places in Sorpigal that are of interest while I grind.

    [​IMG]
    Some more clues! I've heard of Og's quest from the Codex.
    [​IMG]
    These guys have a statue of DarkUnderlord?
    We've already read this one.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I'm pretty sure this is a major hint for the plot. That's gonna be our next target.

    How the Hell do you sey off a trap on A FRICKING SACK!!!!??!???? I think you're gonna die soon because of how inept you are!!!!!!

    The haul is decent at least.

    Show Spoiler

    Hey guys. Something ACTUALLY happens in this update.
    [​IMG]
    You see, this is in a dark, no magic zone. Snakes, even in this, aren't a problem.
    [​IMG]
    I cast my new spell, Electric Arrow:
    [​IMG]
    It's here that I figure out that it's a no-magic zone.
    [​IMG]
    We prevail anyway, but with a casualty. Cue bagpipes.
    [​IMG]
    Of all the souls I have met in my travels, his was the most... human.
    We get ready to tear up, but it's about here that we remember a friend that we had left forgotten in the inn and say "Screw DU! He always set off traps anyway!"
    [​IMG]
    Everyone welcome Mustawd to the party.
    He's level 1, but with a higher luck, which we hope will mean that he sets off less traps.
    [​IMG]
    His first fight with us.
    [​IMG]
    He's already incline over DU.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    This one may prove more of a challenge to our new friend.
    [​IMG]
    Or not.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Looks like there's gonna be a bit of a grind.

    Good job there, Mustawd.

    Thanks Crooked Bee.

    And Excidium II meh. The graphics are nothing to brag about, but they work for this type of game, and I actually like the minimalism. Once this gets to IV, you'll be able to satisfy the graphics whore in you.

    BTW, these are a bit behind (I've got 14 updates in pics saved up on my HDD). We're almost ready to leave the city of Sorpigal. I just need one more level, and you guys could use another level (but once I get Fireball and Fly, we can move with pretty decent freedom on the overworld.

    Just compare to the NES version. Also III already uses the gfx of IV.

    Well, tbh, I haven't played Terra yet.
    Also, NES? Wasn't that the one that lacked rows? Give me DOS-era graphics and proper rows without menu controls any day.

    And lastly, DarkUnderlord I'll bring you back to life eventually, once I have the cash to. Right now, having living team members is a top priority. You'll get to be a part of my backup squad.

    No. Just a millennial from Northeast US. Although, I'm actually taller than most of my teachers, so maybe it is average in your generation.

    Grinding for Money (DU's gonna hate me even more)(I made this probably a week ago)
    Show Spoiler

    Hey guys. Welcome back to LP The Might and Magic Series where we make no progress whatsoever.
    [​IMG]
    Goddammit Mustawd! He's still been better than DU
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Orcs, eh? Should be easy.
    [​IMG]
    Well, fuck. He IS level 1, though.
    [​IMG]
    Oh, balls.
    [​IMG]
    They're gonna die, sure, but...
    [​IMG]
    Well... The thing is...
    [​IMG]
    So did Mustawd...
    [​IMG]
    We start about a quarter of the way there, though.
    [​IMG]
    Actually, a little over half.
    [​IMG]
    This is easy.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Money!

    This could be good grinding for later.

    Almost there!

    [​IMG]
    Yes! No matter what we get, we end up with enough and a littel left over.

    We rez our robber. No progress toward our actual objective has been made in this update.
